After an early breakfast we will drive to photograph sunrise at Godafoss which is likely to be clad in ice around this time of year, making for a truly impressive sight. This is one of Iceland‘s most famous and beautiful falls, and according to the Icelandic sagas it was there that law speaker Thorgeir ljosvetningagodi, who settled the religious strife in Iceland at the time, threw the old idols of the Nordic gods, symbolizing the end of paganism as an officially accepted religious custom. It is said that the fall takes it‘s name. “The fall of the gods“, from this act, but one can just as well agree with the name simply by witnessing the fall‘s sheer beauty.
Afterwards you‘ll head towards the famous lake Myvatn which is set with many small islands and pseudo craters. Close by is the dramatic, indeed chaotic lava field Dimmuborgir, from which a Norwegian symphonic metal band takes its name. Another testimony to how inspiring the scenery is, is the fact that the producers of the TV series Game of Thrones shot many of the scenes beyond the wall at the Myvatn area. Overnight at Myvatn.
